Educating Future Educators

At Harvard School of Dental Medicine, a small cohort of students study dental academia with the interest of possibly pursing dental education in their future careers. I am honored to be among those students, studying with the close mentorship of my academic deans. Even more so, I am excited to share the details of this program with YOU so that we can spread this innovative mentorship program to other dental and higher education programs! It’s time to educate the future educators (and offer exposure to a field many of us simply don’t know enough about :)).

The Ethics of Dentistry

One of the standards of dental ethics is patient self-determination. By providing patients with the opportunity for voluntary, informed consent or refusal, dentists can empower patients to take charge of their treatment choices.

After being in the dental clinic as a pre-doctoral student, my eyes opened to the possibility:

  • What if this informed consent process were made easier – for patients and providers?
  • What if the information weren’t so … dare I say, boring, and possibly even confusing?
  • What if quality of process and experience were both taken into consideration in a re-haul of this tedious routine?

So I took to the Huffington Post with a dental practice management article of a research-base. If informed consent is something that interests you, be sure to FOLLOW THIS LINK and take a look.
